Neuroprosthetic devices: the interplay between electronic and biological systems
Universidade de Alicante –
The interplay between electronic and biological systems is an area on intense interest. Thus, the development of neuroprosthetic devices can have high potential impact on brain research and brain-based industry and is one of the central problems to be addressed in the next decades. This talk will review and summarize the most important physiological principles regarding any neuroprosthetic approach and present a survey of the present state of developments concerning the feasibility of a visual neuroprostheses, as a means through which a limited but useful visual sense could be restored to profoundly blind people.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
